How much would you be willing to pay for a cabin on a luxury cruise ship? $500, $1000 or even $1,500 a night? One cruise ship is offering cabins that are $10,000 a night. Surprisingly, these cabins are pretty much sold out even though the ship has yet to make its maiden voyage. We are talking about the Regent Seven Seas Explorer cruise ship coming out in the summer of 2016.
What You Get For The Money
The most expensive & luxurious cabins at sea can be found on the Regent Seven Seas’ Explorer. The cabins are 3,875 square feet and have two bedrooms. Each suite can accommodate up to six guests. There’s also a large living room and a private spa. The spa features a steam room, treatment area and sauna. There will also be a sunroom and grand piano in each of these suites.
This Is No Ordinary Ship
A ship that’s able to offer its guests a cabin that’s larger than most households in the U.S. has to be in a league of its own. The Explorer will be able to accommodate 750 passengers. In order to take care all of these guests there will be about 500 crew members on board to ensure that the experience is well worth the money. It is estimated that it will cost about $450 million to build this ship. The Explorer won’t debut until July 2016. This all suite ship is set to go on 15 sailings so far. Besides the $10,000 a night cabins there will also be 374 other suites that start at 310 square feet and go up to about 1,500 square feet.
What’s On Board
Guests will get to eat at some of the cruise line’s most popular restaurants like Prime 7 Steakhouse, The Compass Rose and Veranda Café. For entertainment there is the Constellation Theater and Meridian Lounge. New to the Regent Seven Seas is a culinary center called the Culinary Kitchen. It will provide guests with cooking classes from some of the most renowned chefs in the world. It will feature 18 cooking stations that are fully equipped with countertops, sinks and cooktops. There will be more than a dozen different cooking classes offered that feature everything from healthy cooking to preparing mini-desserts.
Once the Explorer sets sail it will spend its inaugural season cruising around the Mediterranean. However, if you don’t want to spend $10,000 a night for a cabin on a cruise ship, we have many other cruises available that might be a more affordable option for you.
